To ensure that freight keeps moving, funding is desperately needed to launch training programs for CDL Drivers, Diesel Mechanics and other operators. The industry is joining together to help support this mission. Please click in and read, as resources for how to help NOW are included within.

SUPPORT NEEDED FROM MARITIME COMMUNITY

The Lowcountry has a tremendous opportunity to house a Transportation and Logistics Center at Trident Technical College to...

  • House Commercial Drivers License (CDL) training and a new diesel mechanic program.
  • Meet the supply chain management and logistics training needs of existing and new industries, including the nearby Volvo and Mercedes plants.
  • Provide flexible classroom/lab space for economic development functions such as supplier and indirect purchasing outreach events, job fairs, workforce information and career exploration events.
  • Create new labs and provide high-speed broadband access that supports high-demand career options in areas of information technology, logistics, engineering technology, manufacturing, business and healthcare.

In order for this campus to come to fruition, funding is required. We need your support to ensure this campus is top of mind for our legislators.
